The Blue Christmas Service

The Blue Christmas Service is held around the time of the longest day of the year (Winter Solstice) which is December 21st.  Churches hold these types of services for people who have lost loved ones and have difficulty during this time of year when others are feeling joyful. There are those that are feeling grief; and may even be feeling some guilt for feeling a bit joyful despite the loss of a loved one. Church members and guests come together to remember and pay respects to those who have passed on in a commemorative way that allows them to focus on the life/lives of their loved ones whom they have lost. Our church will be holding this service on Sunday, December 19th at 6 p.m. and will be lighting candles in commemoration of loved ones who have passed away. We welcome all to come to this service who are experiencing any kind of loss or need support during this time of year. Come and reflect the lives of your loved ones and know that we will be praying alongside of you in this service.
